Omega Centauri (NGC 5139) is a globular cluster in the constellation Centaurus.
Located at a distance of 15,800 light-years, it is the largest globular cluster in the Milky Way at a diameter of roughly 150 light-years.
It is estimated to contain approximately 10 million stars, totalling the equivalent of 4 million solar masses.

This photo was imaged using a Celestron C8 and a QHY268M at the native 2032mm focal length.
This very bright object was exposed for only 78 minutes, 14x180sec subs through a UV & IR Cut filter and 12 x 60s subs through each of the red, green and blue filters.
